The first time I heard the mention of customer experience management was at CMS Expo 2012. In one of the sessions, Robert Rose spent much of his time at the Expo warning the audience that content management systems need to do more than just content management. Rose believed experience management needed to be given a higher priority over web content management. Yesterday, DNN announced with Evoq 8 they are now ready to "move beyond web content management" and enable "marketers to publish, personalize, and measure content anywhere online". The improvements in Evoq 8 are focused on today's marketing needs for better customer engagement.
Evoq 8 allows DNN to introduce to its customers integration with cloud content repositories, real-time personalization, content analytics, and advocacy marketing capabilities. To be honest, many of these features and improvements in Evoq 8 are features we have seen in other modern content management platforms. This is why some critics have suggested that "DNN is making this transition rather late in the game, at a point when there are a number of tools for content marketing". The criticism is understandable, but the term "late" to describe Evoq 8 or DNN is inaccurate.

North Plains has announced the results of independent research around how marketing and other business professionals manage the wide variety of digital assets that make up their campaigns and communication strategies.
The results found that while every single respondent thinks digital asset management is important and the majority can see areas where they’d like to improve asset management, there is still an over-reliance on email to share, track and distribute assets (70% of respondents).
However, 43% are looking at implementing digital asset management systems to improve access control, while 52% have systems that they are seeking to improve.

Technology is getting faster and smarter. Computers are now able to recognize and learn patterns, and make decisions in real-time. Their improved analytic and decision-making abilities allow them to outperform humans in areas such as medical diagnoses, legal recognition and customized marketing campaigns.
The era of big data has only furthered the usefulness of computers. Marketers now have massive amounts of customer information at their disposal. Using big data analytics allows markers to gain deeper insights and create more detailed models to improve marketing strategies. However, this isn’t an easy transition. Traditionally, marketers had pieces of information about their audience and ads, but mainly relied on intuition when making decisions and building business strategies.
